Hands down, I think the most difficult part of parenting is to shift from an automatic response–yelling, time-out, or punishment–to a thoughtful response.
We talked with Dr. Lynyetta Willis about how to transform our triggers recently. If you want to hear the first part of our talk click here.
It was a great conversation and we want to share it with you!
Lynyetta even has a worksheet that you can use to transform your triggers (you can download your very own copy).
The best part is… you don’t have to do this perfectly. You can use Lynyetta’s process in the heat of the moment, or even afterward.
And her process makes it less likely that you’ll have a knee jerk response next time.
